Description

Brief Description

Presents a global reinterpretation of Cratylus, Plato's only dialogue devoted to the subject of language.

Learn More about the Book

This book presents a global reintrepretation of the Cratylus, which bears on the relationship of language to knowledge, a topic that has never ceased to be of central philosophical importance. It is designed to be accessible to anyone interested either in Plato or in the history of linguistic thought. The main text does not presuppose prior expertise in Plato or knowledge of Greek; such scholarly aspects are confined to the footnotes.

Review Quotes

1. 'Every page of this book is characterized by the sanity of judgement and depth of knowledge of ancient thought which are the hallmarks of the author. It is a model of clarity and of austere stylistic elegance. The volume inaugurates C. U. P.'s new series Cambridge Studies in the Dialogues of Plato, under the general editorship of M. M. McCabe; it sets a high standard for subsequent contributors.' British Journal for the History of Philosophy

2. '... an extraordinarily rich book, providing both a main thesis and a number of intelligent readings of single passages ... Sedley's book has struck me as an intensely humane and - if I may say so - Platonic piece of writing. His prose is admirably terse and vivid, the very answers he gives to the problems posed by the Cratylus raise issues and questions on a higher level, so that one has always the exciting impression of having embarked on a true philosophical journey.' Journal of Hellenic Studies
